Fund Raising

Our club funding is in fine shape as the Treasurer’s report indicates, but there is a continued need to replenish these funds each year to fund our efforts: parting gifts to graduates and past officers, birthday gifts for our cadets, food and drinks for our meetings, and the sending of special boodle to our cadets and soldiers if the need might develop. In past years, this also included seed money for the semi-annual All Service Academy Ball. It will be several years, though, before this responsibility rotates back to our club.

There are many ways to raise funds for the club, ranging from our past tulip sales, to the club store, to soliciting donations from members and interested parties, to name a few. Our next meeting will be an opportunity to review past efforts, and to solicit ideas for the coming year.

See you all at the next meeting!

Stories were shared. Definitely a good time was had by all!
